Has Christopher Nolan Made The Next “Matrix”?
Make no mistake about it, Christopher Nolan is one of the best directors working today. His track record is pretty damn impressive so far, with nothing but good to great movies. He hit critical and commercial paydirt with “The Dark Knight”. Of course, no one in the Academy saw the movie and not only was the movie hosed in the Best Picture race last year, Nolan was really, really, I mean really f’ed over for a Best Director nomination.
With his next movie, “Inception”, Nolan may have found the right formula for “Dark Knight”-ish success. It looks pretty damn intriguing and he’s got Leonardo DiCaprio (who the Academy is dying to hand an Oscar to) in the lead role. I wish this movie came out this year instead of “Avatar”.
